THE LOCAL WORKSHOP ON CROWDFUNDING IN SZOMBATHELY, HUNGARY
On 31 May 2019, local workshop on crowdfunding was held in Szombathely, Hungary.
After a welcome speech by István KOVÁCS, President of the Hegypásztor Kör Associaton and a general introduction of project ARTISTIC, the floor has been given to Ms. Beatrix BEDŐ, Co-Founder, CFO & Mentor at Impact Hub, Budapest and former HR Director at TV2, one of the most popular commercial television channel in Hungary.
The main aim of the event was to provide an overview and introduction about the essential of crowdfunding to local cultural operators and stakeholders. How it works? What are the available platforms in Hungary? How to generate a successful campaign? What are the preconditions, critical criteria of running a good campaign? Even good – and not-so-good – practices have been presented to the participants.
The audience became really inspired during the workshop, and the event turned into an exciting group discussion within Beatrix and the participants.
